this just prove that even google play might and will outnumber app store in near future but still, they got different contents... google play has a lot of rip off apps (thousands of angry birds and games alike, sorry no offense..just saying facts) while app store still has a mijority of apps that isnt available to google play and even to windows marketplace!

This actually didn't prove anything you said. It just proves that these titles are not available from Google Play

it depends on the PA writer... there are some writer that are ultimate fanboys and (some bias) but one thing for sure, PA is all about iOS and Android... you're just surprise that they will post WP, BB or even Symbian news here...

For tablet games iPad still has the lead. No need to be upset. I am sure things will change when Google keep up the good work while apple spent all their time sueing and creating Fear.

Make no mistake, samsung and other phone OEMs use Android is because of the advances made by Google in a super rapid pace. Open Source it that don't take away their control.

Microsoft and Apple use lawsuits that try to change the game to their advantage. Making Android too expensive to be attractive for the OEM so that they might take up windows 8.

I have faith that the game will even out eventually and favour the one that innovate.

well 2 games on the list are on android, Horn and Granny Smith.

And this article just goes to show that, despite in Console and PC gaming, most game publishers and developers dont really hold bias towards any of those platforms, when it comes to phone and tablet gaming, there's a lot of bias and fanboyism. Devs may claim "piracy" is rampant on Android, but is it really? Ubisoft said 95% of players on PC pirate their games, but yet they still port their games to PC, which tells me its an outright lie. They make these outrageous lies to defend their stances such as not porting games or putting in restrictive DRM.

i think it is partly the fact that it is harder to make the games for android… making them for ios is simple and immediately has a huge base… with android there are spotty updates and multiple hardware platforms..

but then again same with pc vs. console gaming, but i feel like if android really did make that much money they would put out the effort

Someone needs to do better research when writing articles. Five of these games are available on Android as well. It seems to me, that the Author has an iProduct and only perused the Apple market and barely did any cross referencing. Saw a couple games on Android market and said good enough!

Why not have a list of 10 or so Android only games as well?
